I am a cheerful woman, who is a couple of sizes too large, but with a big heart to go with the big body! I'm happy with who I am, where I am in life and all the adventures I have had, and am going to have. I am Australian, born & bred, and I arrived in Coquimbo in 2009 on my way to see Machu Picchu, and I immediately fell in love with the beaches, people and culture. I have since relocated (yes, sold all I had, packed my bags with 32kgs of the essentials of my life and moved to the other side of the world) I have been fortunate to work and live in this little slice of heaven for nearly 3 years, and have since fallen in love with a Chilean, making it even more "home" now than ever. We are heading to Australia this year (2013) to "meet the family" and of course, so I can show off my own country. We plan to return to Coquimbo, to settle down & live, so I am not in any mood to be selling up my gorgeous beachfront apartment, so why not put it to good use? Let someone out there who wants a stay in my little slice of paradise, a nice place from which to do it! I invite you to get to know Coquimbo, it's people, friendly port culture and not to mention the amazing Elqui Valley. And you can do it all from the beautiful place I call home.
